On the heels of announcing a landmark television partnership between the Fox family of networks and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Fox Sports on Wednesday announced that it would air UFC Primetime on Oct. 30 on Fox as build-up to a Nov. 12 live UFC event on the network.
The one-hour behind-the-scenes special will feature the main event fighters from the UFC’s Nov. 12 debut live event on Fox, although the headliners have yet to be announced. The fight card will take place in Anaheim, Calif.
Fox Sports and the UFC recently announced a multi-year, multi-platform rights agreement that features programming on several Fox networks including FX and Fuel TV. Featured programming includes live fights, pre and post shows, countdown shows, and a variety of UFC-produced original programs.
